DOWN SYNDROME WORLD SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIP

The Down Syndrome International Swimming Organization (DSISO) was created when it was realised that swimmers with Down Syndrome were being outclassed in competition by other people with learning disabilities who did not have the same physical disabilities that are often associated with Down Syndrome. DSISO provides the opportunity to swim at a World Class level through its World Championships held every two years and also keeps World Record information for swimmers with Down Syndrome.  

In July of 2018, Truro will play host to the 9th annual Down Syndrome World Swimming Championship.
